A participatory assessment is an assembly of descriptive and analytical objects, informed and shared concerning an environmental issue.

These objects can be composed of various contents and formats: narratives, models, mental maps, scenarios, graphs, visual representations, etc. This assembly is not a mere collection of all contributions to the knowledge of the system, but a synthetic vision that reflects the conclusions of the participatory process. The objective is to facilitate the understanding of a problem while addressing a certain level of complexity.

An assessment is an original product that complements territorial management plans, expert consultancy or classical scientific publications.
